Cover your baking dish with foil and store your Large Family Chicken, Mushroom, and Spinach Lasagna in the fridge if you plan on baking it the next day. However, if you need to freeze it, cover it the same way with foil and put it in the freezer where you can keep it for up to two months. Let the lasagna thaw out in the fridge overnight before you plan on putting it in the oven to cook it for the family.

Different Modifications You Can Make and What to have along with the Lasagna

Instead of using a traditional red sauce for the lasagna, you will create a sauce using chicken stock, all-purpose flour, and a blend of different seasonings. You can make modifications to the sauce based on your preference while using some of your favorite seasonings, such as Italian seasoning, garlic and herb seasoning, and more. You may want to add more cheese to the lasagna, such as ricotta and parmesan.

You may want to add easy sides to your lasagna. Add a fresh lettuce salad, a cranberry apple salad, or marinated Cucumbers.

Description

Prepare a meaty lasagna loaded with wholesome veggies when you make this Large Family Chicken, Mushroom, and Spinach Lasagna. It is the perfect way to get your kids to eat their veggies without a fuss!

 


Ingredients

  • 6 cups chicken stock
  • 3 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cooked and shredded
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cups chopped onion
  • 3 teaspoons salt, divided
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1 (16 ounces) package sliced baby Bella mushrooms
  • 2 (16 ounces) packages of fresh baby spinach
  • 3 cups milk
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups shredded Italian cheese blend
  • 2 (16 ounces) packages of lasagna noodles
  • 4 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

 


Instructions

  1. Prepare two 9×13 casserole dishes spraying lightly cooking spray. Set aside.

  2. Heat a dutch oven or stockpot over medium-high heat. Coat the skillet with olive oil.

  3. Add the onion, garlic, 1 1/2 teaspoon salt, thyme, red pepper, and mushrooms. Cook for about 8 minutes and then stir in the spinach a handful at a time to allow the spinach to cook down. Stir in the chicken, remove from heat, and set aside.

  4. In a large saucepan, combine the milk, 1 1/2 teaspoons of remaining salt, and nutmeg, broth, and bring to a slow simmer over medium heat. When bubbles begin to form, gradually whisk in flour and let simmer until thick stirring often. About 5-10 minutes.

  5. Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the Italian cheese blend. 

  6. Pour ¾ cup of the sauce into the bottom of each casserole dish. Top the sauce in each dish with a layer of noodles. Do not overlap the noodles. Next, add a layer of the chicken mixture and a sprinkle of mozzarella cheese. Repeat the layering, finishing with a layer of sauce. Top with any remaining mozzarella cheese.

  7. Cover each dish with aluminum foil and refrigerate overnight.

  8. To bake, remove the lasagna from the refrigerator about 20 minutes before baking. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Bake, covered, for 25 minutes. Uncover the casserole dishes and continue to bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned and bubbly around the edges.

How to freeze:  Cover tightly with aluminum foil and freeze for up to 2 months. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight. Follow the above instructions to bake.
